The power source blocks, input blocks and output blocks are all color coded, and they have been learning about how the input affects the output by tying in the Reading skill, "cause and effect!"
Ambridge Area School District
Act 1 Referendum
Pursuant to Act 1, the Pennsylvania Department of Education publishes an index % applicable to the School District. The Ambridge Area School District’s real estate tax increase for the 2016/2017 fiscal year is limited to the index of 3.3%. As a result of special circumstances covered by an Act 1 referendum exception, a tax rate % increase above 3.3% might be required to balance the Ambridge Area School District’s budget for the 2016/2017 fiscal year. The Ambridge Area School District intends to seek approval from the Pennsylvania Department of Education as required by Act 1 for an exception allowing an increase of the real estate tax as reflected in the Ambridge Area School District’s Preliminary Budget.
A copy of the proposed preliminary budget will be available for public inspection by December 30, 2015 in the Ambridge Area School District Business Office which is located at the Ambridge Area High School, 909 Duss Avenue, Ambridge, PA, and on the District’s website at www.ambridge.k12.pa.us. Final adoption of the preliminary budget will be taken at the scheduled voting meeting of the Board of School Directors to be held on January 20, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. in the High School auditorium.
